Jacob's Review:
   I really enjoy science and animals so I was happy when my parents took me to the science museum in Houston. I thought it was just a regular science museum but I was really happy and excited when I found out it had live butterflies inside it! I liked learning about butterflies and weird things about them, like how people in different countries eat bugs. That part was disgusting but awesome. My absolute favorite part had to be the waterfall and all the different butterflies that were flying around.

   I saw some really different looking butterflies that were really pretty. I hope I get to go back to the butterfly center again really soon!


Dad's Notes:
   Jacob enjoys science and likes to learn about nature. I decided to take her to the Cockrell Butterfly Center because I had heard about it from a family friend. The Cockrell Butterfly Center in in the Houston Science Museum, but is a separate admission from the regular museum price. The extra admission is well worth the cost, since this is not something you will experience at every museum. The butterfly center was beautiful with the waterfall adding to the tropical feeling of the museum.

  We had a chance to see many different varieties of butterflies before we headed downstairs to the exhibitions about butterflies. There we learned about different types of butterflies and their habitats. Even if your child is not one to enjoy museums often, I would recommend visiting the Cockrell Butterfly Center. The butterfly exhibit will be fun for them and they will learn about science while having a good time.

Jacob Tip:   Make sure that when you visit the Cockrell Butterfly Center, you get there early enough so you have enough time to see everything. There is a lot of walking around there, so I'd recommend that you wear good tennis shoes and not flip-flops, otherwise your feet will get really sore.
